Description

Updated mysql-server packages that fix several vulnerabilities are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server.

This update fixes several security risks in the MySQL server.

Stefano Di Paola discovered two bugs in the way MySQL handles user-defined functions. A user with the ability to create and execute a user defined function could potentially execute arbitrary code on the MySQL server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2005-0709 and CVE-2005-0710 to these issues.

Stefano Di Paola also discovered a bug in the way MySQL creates temporary tables. A local user could create a specially crafted symlink which could result in the MySQL server overwriting a file which it has write access to. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-0711 to this issue.

All users of the MySQL server are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain fixes for these issues.
